Diclofenac + Codeine is a combination of two medicines: Diclofenac + Codeine1 and Diclofenac + Codeine2, which relieves severe pain. Diclofenac + Codeine1 is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Diclofenac + Codeine2 is an opioid which works by blocking transmission of pain signals to the brain to lower pain perception.
